  • (French) Travis Moen knew by October that the Habs organization had no place for him, and he had asked for a meeting with the management before being traded to Dallas. Moen explains "they told me I wasn't one of the best 12 forwards on the team." [La Presse]

I’m writing this because I’m still scared. Because I don’t know why I’ve been blamed for the repercussions he’s faced. I didn’t ask him to say those things. I never asked for any of this. I just want to have the right to love hockey like every man does. I want to be able to wear red lipstick without people thinking it’s an invitation to hit on me. I want to wear the hockey jersey of my favorite player without being called a puckslut. I want to be confident and comfortable in my body without it being an invitation to be sexually harassed.
